Has anybody seen this youtube channel The Romanov Royal Martyrs ?

It pretty interesting and gives a very different portrayal of Nicholas II than what we generally get.

The same thing goes for the book The Romanov Royal Martyrs


To me it seems that Nicholas II generally is portrayed either in a very bad light or in a very positive light, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

On October 20, 1905 Tsar Nicholas II allowed the Poles to speak Polish to help quell the revolution in the Kingdom of Poland.

Btw, under this point Alix wasn't the only "failure" among Queen Victoria's descendants: i.e. Alix' cousin, the German Emperor Wilhelm II, who despite being the son of two liberal parents and the grandson of Queen Victoria (and despite the strong admiration he felt for his grandmother) wasn't liberal at all and definitely preferred autocracy.
Kaiser Wilhelm made diplomatic blunders but he was not autocrat, Prussia had universal sufferage, and was miles ahead of Russia in many things. Alice and Nicholas didnít play safe and smart.
